The weird concept of: the weird concepts

Weird concepts, the world is full of them. On daily basis I can be fascinated as well as surprised by things I see or observe. In nature, in politics, and mostly: in people.

She might have been a foreigner in this region, she was as French as that fresh baguette that was preferred on her table.
